Could this be the number one restored boat in the world? Miss Step is ready to go!
The 2013 Lake Hopatcong show did not disappoint, in fact it blew all of us away. This group is AMAZING. Wonderful hosts, and amazing boats. The show ended with a wonderful parade and awards ceremony. We have some of the big winners here, Best in show restored went to Miss Step, from Katz’s marina,
Seth picking up several first place award. One for Miss Step, the other for Evoline a stunning 17 barrel back. Dunc Hawkens President of ACBS International next to him.
and pest preserved went to Riva Diva, a stunning 1963 Riva Jr.
“Diva” is a 1966 18′ Riva Jr owned by Peter Takvorian , retains all of her original wood.
The sick thing about this show is the level of quality that is here. Almost every boat would do well at any major show in the US..
The awards room was packed and very excited about the awards.
The other HUGE winner of the evening was Fellow Woody boater Wayne Mocksfield who recieved the highest honor that the club can award, the Mook award. We will do a special story on this later. Needless to say, Waynes contrbution to the hobby of classic boats in amazing. Congrats to Wayne

Man that’s some great photo shots, excellent quality and composition, damn you guys are great.
This is the essential reflection of the exclusive nature of beauty in wood and the glistening of the waters that make wooden boating, whether it be pleasure boating or racing, so very nice in every regard. This presentation of a very nice outing looks great and is professionally presented. Thank you very much. I appreciate you. Kevin
